The option for temporary product promotions “Special Price From Date/Special Price To Date” is not longer working

Hi, I hope someone can help us with this issue.
On our online Magento store we constantly run temporary promotions on some selected products.
On the backend of Magento there is a calendar setting option to define a specific period of time for making these offers automatically available on the frontend. Unfortunately, this option is not longer working on our system.
Below there is an example about how to recreate these settings:
Manage products>select a product>prices>set a price and a special price>select a date from “Special Price From Date"> select a date from “Special Price To Date”

Even though the options “Special Price From Date” and “Special Price To Date” are filled, we are forced to enable and disable the promotion manually. This involves one more uncomfortable step from us, as if we don’t change manually this settings the promotion will stay active.
